Yes, we’ve been trying to grant your requests for less news from former reality stars, but this tidbit technically involves gossip about the current cast of The Real Housewives of New York and we couldn’t pass it up! Kristen Taekman may have just landed herself in more hot water with her co-stars!
On a podcast episode of Unfiltered from a few weeks back, Brandi Glanville revealed that her BFF Kristen revealed that one of the RHONY ladies has a bit of a cocaine issue. Brandi chatted on her podcast with The Peoples Couch stars Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard – I’m not sure who is who on the recording since I don’t watch the show, but after hearing some of their sarcasm on the podcast I might need to tune in and check it out.
Anywho, the subject of RHONY and drugs came up. Brandi asked, “By the way. The New York chicks. Are they all on coke all the time?” Brandi’s friend Mark suggests it’s probably just a whole lot of Red Bull, but one of the Peoples Couch ladies says Luann de Lessepswas probably doing coke this season. “This particular season Luann let loose and got completely f***ed up so she was probably doing coke.” Just a note here for those with reading comprehension issues – I clearly state that it was Brandi’s GUEST who says this previous quote about Luann, NOT Brandi.
Brandi says, “I thought for sure they were all runnin’ lines in the bathroom. It just seemed like it. They were all yankered up.”
Kim Richards has been flying under the radar lately, focusing on getting well and getting her life back on track. The former (?) Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared some updates on how things are going and revealed her plans to attend this year’s celebrity signing event at Chiller in Jersey.
Kim chatted with her former RHOBH co-star on the Unfiltered podcast, talking about her health, her kids and more. On her foot and knee: “they’re getting better. It’s still a little hard to get around, but you know. It’s okay. I feel good. I’m really happy things are going good.”
In what seems to be a bit of a miracle twist, Lamar Odom seems to be experiencing a turnaround in his health. Lamar was hospitalized on Tuesday after a coke and herbal Viagra bender at a brothel in Nevada. The former NBA star is now awake from his coma after four days and is breathing on his own.
New reports out this afternoon claim that Lamar woke up long enough to smile at soon-to-be ex-wife Khloe Kardashian and say “hey baby” to her before falling to sleep. Lamar is also now rumored to be breathing on his own and his heart is showing signs of being on the mend, as well. That’s pretty great news for a guy whose survival seemed bleak just yesterday, with multiple organ failure.
We’re kicking off the the weekend with another poll party! This week we’ve been chatting about everything from Teresa Giudice’s three part special to Abby Lee Miller’s federal indictment for bankruptcy fraud, continued Real Housewives of Orange County drama and more. You’ve weighed in with your opinions in the comments and now we’re gathering up your “official” stances on a variety of hot topics from the week.
Continue reading on for the polling fun! Cast your votes and see how your opinions stack up with your fellow Reality Tea readers!
It was previously thought that Teresa might go with her former long-time ghost writer Heather Maclean, but it looks like the felonista has gone in a new direction. Teresa tapped People magazine writer K.C. Baker to lend her a hand. Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, is set to be released on Feb. 9, 2016 by Gallery Books.
Color us wrong. Earlier I said that the Kardashians weren’t technically Lamar Odom’sfamily any longer, but it turns out they are, legally anyway. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar are still very much married, sort of – at least for a few more months. And it has changed things a bit as far as Lamar’s medical decisions since Khloe is in charge.
TMZ claims that even though Lamar and Khloe finally signed their divorce papers back in July (despite initially filing back in December 2013), the divorce still isn’t official because of a backlog in cases. So technically they are still married and Khloe swooped in to make medical decisions for Lamar while he’s in a coma and unable to make his own.
Fans still care a whole lot about Teresa Giudice’sfamily and The Real Housewives of New Jersey, apparently! Preliminary viewer numbers are in for part 1 of the three part special, Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In showcasing how her family is coping while she’s in prison – and they’re not too shabby!
The RHONJ: Teresa Checks Inspecial pulled in 1.2 million viewers on Sunday night in its first airing (Bravo normally counts several same-day airings to get their own final numbers). For comparison’s sake: Manzo’d with Children had just 910,000 viewers (and only 719,000 last week).
